I just found a slightly scary hack to edit other people’s repls.

Who do I tell? How do I pm a dev?

if this is actually real tell them on discord

Highwayman (1441)

@MrEconomical I don’t have access to discord. :’( it is real, I think I could delete someone’s entire code with the right repl. No joke. At all. I even tested it. (Don’t worry all I did was add 'hello dude' to someone’s prog sorry to them.)

@Highwayman Why can't you use discord?

Highwayman (1441)

@MatthewDoan1 not just but yeah, they blacklisted discord.

MatthewDoan1 (336)

@Highwayman Don't you have a home computer? ;-;

MatthewDoan1 (336)

@Highwayman Oh by the way I still need to finish high school apps so I can't teach you JS for the moment, I should be done maybe in ~4 days ish. Sorry lol

Highwayman (1441)

@MatthewDoan1 oh! that’s fine,
I was wondering why you didn’t respond last time I asked. I actually just put up a massive project right now that turned to js (I’m not good at restraint lol) wanna join? It going on for like a couple more days maybe a week more? Or well that’s when I said the big stuff is gonna happen but some of them just started right away so ya know.. here: https://repl.it/talk/share/MERRY-CHRISTMAS-YAAAY/24761

@Highwayman If your school has it banned, you can get a VPN (assuming the ban is on the network) and if the ban is on the devices themselves, you can probably install linux pretty easily to evade those if you so desire

Highwayman (1441)

@Grify it’s on my device and my device is an iPad so no I can’t. 🤷‍♂️ I don’t really care too much I can communicate with y’all well enough just on repl.it/talk

HackermonDev (2007)

tbh, I really want to know

HackermonDev (2007)

@PDanielY wait nvm, I just found out the way you were talking about. I found that way before but it didn't change the repl for everyone so I didn't report it

AdCharity (1317)

uh plz don't attack me.... btw does it allow hacking of private repls?

Highwayman (1441)

@AdCharity dunanunauna BOOOMMM!!! jk. I would never do that your too cool of a person for that and even if you weren’t I’m not a total a-hole, so don’t worry.
Also I emailed them and they just told me the changes don’t persist so repl.it is safe.

FOR NOW MAUH HAHAHAHAHA!!!! >:) jk.

Highwayman (1441)

@AdCharity also forgot to say but it doesn’t work on private repls either

@AdCharity

Then me: frantically trying to find the non-existent esc key on my iPad.
AHHHHH
